Mysterious Deryn

My annual Mystery Shawl KAL has come to and end. Thank you to everyone who participated this year! I had great fun watching everyone knit the shawl. They're all so beautiful.

I've renamed the pattern to Deryn and it's now available in my regular pattern format.

This is a semi-circle shawl with the volume turned up. The middle of the shawl highlights a clever sideways-knit section, adding interest to the traditional shawl shape. The piece is finished with a knitted-on border that is quick to knit and fun to work.
This shawl pattern really came together after teaching Lovely Lace Borders at Stitches Midwest in August. There was a student in the class who was asking about attaching borders to other borders to  make a shawl. That got me thinking.
The middle section of the shawl is knit by working sideways, in the traditional way you think of a knitted-on border. However, at the same time you are adding stitches to the other edge. This creates live stitches so once you finish working sideways you can continue working from the top down without having to break the yarn or picking up stitches. And, I've created a tutorial video if you find that part of the pattern a little confusing.  

This is definitely one of my favorite shawls I've designed. I hope you all love it as much as I do!
